    This week I want to talk about Georgia Farrell. She is a rising star among Rowan designers and moving confidently out on her own. Designing professionally since at least 2015, she’s done several excellent collections of really wearable designs.  

    I first took real notice of Georgia’s work when she did My London, a collection of modern accessories in Rowan Alpaca Soft DK and Alpaca Classic. That was 2020. Really fresh designs that show her love of architecture and how it informs her work.  

    I tend to pick certain favorites from pattern collections without thinking too much about who the designer is. I know, very selfish of me, but I think that’s how most of us non-designers do. Anyway, looking back over her work on Ravelry, I see that most of my favorite designs from Mode and Rowan over the past few seasons have been Georgia’s 

    This one from the very first Mode collection was such a standout. We had several knitters make this one in beautiful Kid Classic.

    and this one with a matching scarf

    This one was my favorite design ever for Merino Aria.

    And these fabulous tanks in Cotton Glace from Mode

    One medium skinned model with dark hair wearing gold colored tank top in Rowan Cotton Glace and one light skinned model with dark blond hair wearing the same tank in white


    This one from Rowan Magazine 70 is just gorgeous

    Light skinned model with brown hair wearing elbow length cropped sweater in dark gray Felted Tweed. Sweater is knit from side to side and there is a metallic strand carried through some of the cables.

    And of course these two from Textured Tweed Haze

    If you’re already a little tired of winter and ready for some spring, then you want to look at  Abstract, a fun and colorful collection in Felted Tweed and Kidsilk Haze.  Felted Tweed is a perfect transitional fiber - warm enough for spring’s chilly weather but colorful enough to get me out of the winter doldrums.  There are soft pastels and vibrant brights, and everything in between.  

    Look at these two gorgeous vests, Asymmetry and Reflect. Both would be perfect over a turtleneck now, over a blouse through late spring and again in the fall and winter. depending on the colors you choose.

    I’ll be reviewing this entire collection as well as selections from Textured Tweed Haze and Soft Structures on the podcast here.  

    I hope you’ll join  me.
